The picture was meant to be a thought-provoking ruse to trigger disinfo agents. Lets be clear, it was the Israeli Mossad, the US State Department/CIA as well British military contracting firms that have been busted over and over again aiding Islamic terrorists (or what Obama liked to call "rebels") in attempt to overthrow Assad and his nationalist government which is an economic ally to Russia.
The anti-Assad propaganda falls flat on its face if you do enough research and have the skills to think critically for yourself. Assad and his administration has worked very hard to liberate Syria from Islamic forces who have slaughtered, maimed and killed innocent Christians and Muslims who have refused to comply to brutal Sharia Law.
Why would anyone condone Sharia Law? Anyone who is a decent human being would shun such a hostile, belligerent, brutal and inhumane ideology. Sharia Law and its ilk was subjugating and destroying the republic of Syria, and if successful would have reduced Syria to rubble. What good could come of this, or better yet who would stand to benefit?
Israel would have, because they want to expand their territory be reducing other nations around it to rubble, and when they do, they grab major chunks of occupied land for expansion for the Israeli state. Israel is a major asset to the US deep state and military industrial complex, so this is why our intelligence agencies work hand in hand with Mossad's destabilization operations.
This needs to stop, it is creating untold misery around the Middle East, far far far worse than Russian economic cooperations that undermine the US dollar.
The solution for the US would be to simply not waste Trillions of Dollars $$$ on these despicable wars, but to compete economically and diplomatically with Russia through better trade relations and increasing economic productivity within the United States.
Russia cannot undermine the US dollar though Syria alone, it would also take us wasting TRILLIONS OF OUR OWN DOLLARS to further undermine the petrodollar - as we have seen happen.
Bad policies have consequences. Until we accept that, we will continue to fail and continue to be undermined. But, I know... blame the victims. That seems to be the response these corrupt elites always conclude. Scapegoats, denial and pity parties.
